2015 Day of Development
Recap & 2016 Save the Date
By Shawn Premer, SPHR,

ay 8, 2015 was an outstanding Day of Development
for HR professionals in the Kalamazoo area!
On that beautiful Friday, Kalamazoo Human
Resources Management Association (KHRMA) had the
opportunity to host some of the top speakers Michigan
has to offer! With the theme of WE ARE HR, general
and keynote sessions focused on the essential competencies HR professionals must master to earn their seat at
the executive table.
Our keynote lineup included: John Fikany, senior
vice president of sales for Microsoft; James Goebel,
COO of Menlo Innovations; Jeanne Hess, Women's
volleyball coach for K-College; and an executive leader/
CEO panel of Kalamazoo's top companies including
Stryker, Landscape Forms, Schupan & Sons, YWCA,
and Consumers Credit Union.
Attendees walked away for the day feeling motivated
and inspired. The day was not only filled with great
learning opportunities, it was also a high-energy day
of networking. With over 125 attendees, 30 exhibitors
and sponsors, and an after-party sponsored by Latitude
42 Brewery, it was impossible not to have fun making
John Fikany even stuck around after his closing
session to network and connect with the conference
attendees (many of which came only to see him). The
energy and excitement of the day could be felt by all.
As you consider your opportunities for learning and
growth in 2016 - you should strongly consider the
KHRMA Day of Development.
